Many of you know that I Golden LOVE Bananas.
We always have bananas. Our local grocery stores know my mom as the “Banana Lady”. Our friend Lulu’s mom Christie from Life with Beagle asked us “How ripe should the bananas be, before you give them to a dog?” In my household, we eat bananas everyday and we take our bananas ripeness seriously.
How to tell if a banana is ripe?
a) If the banana is solid green then its not ripe. Green bananas will turn yellow just leaving it on the kitchen counter/table. Never ripen bananas in the refrigerator, it will turn bad instead of ripening.
b) A yellow banana is a ripe banana.
c) A Banana with brown spots and/or turning brown is a very ripe banana.
Did you know?
A green banana is mostly starch. As a green banana becomes a yellow banana, the starch converts into sugar. The brown-ier a yellow banana turns, the more it taste sweeter. Browning bananas are great to freeze and use for Banana Ice Cream.
If you eat bananas, make sure to give them a chance to ripen, sweeten up.
You’ll enjoy it more.
